General Election 2019: Labour and Anti-Semitism – BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has insisted there is no place for anti-Semitism in modern Britain and said those guilty of such racism in the Labour Party have been "brought to book". He was speaking after the Chief Rabbi accused him of allowing anti-Jewish racism to take root within Labour, and questioned his fitness to be prime minister. In an unprecedented break with convention, Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis said he felt compelled to intervene because the "very soul of our nation was at stake". The Conservative Party also came under heavy criticism today, when the Muslim Council of Britain accused it of "denial, dismissal and deceit" on the issue of Islamophobia.

Also we continue our journey around the UK and the places where seats could change hands in this General Election. Tonight we’re in the Preseli Pembrokeshire constituency in south-west Wales, which has a very small Conservative majority and is a key target seat for the Labour party.

Tonight’s coverage on the BBC News at Ten comes from Laura Kuenssberg and Clive Myrie, and is presented by Huw Edwards.

What BS is the bbc talking about. Criticizing a government and anti Semitism isn’t the same thing

It's a laugh, I like Corbyn as a person but I do not particularly like his party. However, the BBC's bias in this blatant anti-Semitism smear campaign is crystal clear.

This story appears to be made soley to fill airtime, of course with the normal lack of concern over repercussions by the producers.

This is from an outsiders perspective. I live in Australia but it looks like the public aren't swallowing this nonsense...10 years ago, maybe?...not today in 2019...The anti semetic thing is getting old.

I'm calling BS. Criticising a government is not the same as being anti-Semitic. Grow up GB

I'd like some actual examples of the anti-semitism that Corbyn is accused of to make an informed opinion. Is it anti-semitism or anti-Zionism that is the issue?

The anti-Semitism smear campaign is increasingly desperate. It's really just old-fashioned anti-socialist red-baiting, and only proves how worried the comfortable establishment are about the growing working class support for Corbyn's policies.
& It goes without saying, the BBC and it's journalists should be ashamed of themselves, they're no better than the Daily Mail hacks or the billionaire's tabloid rags.
The fact that Jo Swinson concurs should tell you all you need to know.

Criticizing Israeli interests and Israeli policies does not equal Anti-semitic.
